  5. AUTO-SCAN: Inlet and Exhaust Damage Registration Sensor

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF121C125

    ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting aircraft engine inlet and exhaust cavities are labor intensive and error prone. Airmen crawl into ducts looking for defects, trace suspected sites on Mylar sheets noting their position relative to cavity features, and manually enter the data into an aircraft assessment system. Technology that can reduce inspection times and eliminate sources of human err ...

  10. Aircraft Damage Locator


    Military aircraft often receive damage from a variety of causes. This damage is detected through visual inspection or through the aid of handheld nondestructive inspection devices. Regardless of the inspection method used, however, determining the damage’s exact location and spatial orientation is critical. Typically, hand measurements are taken relative to structural features such as fastene ...
